When we say “Modify as needed,” we usually mean if Q calls for 30 Merkins, but you can only do 15, that’s OK. Or maybe you need to do it from your knees. That’s how you modify.

Today we needed to modify the duration of the workout. Icy conditions meant it would take longer to get to work. It’s all part of preparedness that F3 defines as “Getting ready for the expected” (like, the morning) “while being ready for the unexpected” (like the icy conditions). Q Source

Actually, the workout was the second workout of the morning. The first was chipping ice off the windshield.

PVC Workout

  • Big shoulder swings
  • Reversed swings
  • Front and back

Club bell

  • Round the world
  • Club mill
  • Reverse mill

And the grand finale

  • Jump Rope – 2 minutes

At a fundamental level, the most important aspect of even an abbreviated workout:

The fart sack still lost.

You can teach an old dog new words…

AO: Higgins
Date: 11-13-2018

Conditions: Perfect

I’ve been reading a book called “Ready To Run” and have found out that all my life I’ve been running wrong. The foot is designed in such a way that if you run on your toes your foot functions like a spring and absorbs the shock. My knees are saying “Thanks! But what took you so long??” The difference is huge.

That’s the good news. The bad news is that this 65 year old body has been accustomed to running wrong for so long that doing it correctly now gives the body something new to complain about.

The word for today is – plantar fasciitis. Although the knees feel the relief, the connective tissue in the foot are now stretching in ways they are not accustomed to.

Modify as needed – no rucking today. All shoulder workout.

The three Fs of F3 are Fitness, Fellowship, and Faith, in that order. Why? “Because men who have no self-control over what they eat or drink and the daily use to which they put their bodies become captive to their lack of physical fitness.” Q-Source

Join us and we’ll work on that self-control thing together. And maybe we’ll learn some new tricks, too.

The skunks seem to have called it a day for the season, but it is still a dangerous place to be. I nearly fell when I tripped on a Hedge Apple.
